From what I've seen, Gateway bags are only slightly less durable than Revolution...and most of that is due to Revolution's truck vinyl bottoms and more durable frames.
From what Ive seen, Revoloution is comparable to Gateway, but isnt any better.
Dont believe the hype. The dividers are garbage, even the new injected molded ones. I have a friend who has went through 3 already. The dividers on the Gateway bags are no prize, but are consistenly outlasting the Revo dividers around here.
Truck vinyl on the bottom? Well, maybe, but the bottom of my backpack STILL looks brand new and is on its 4th year. I dont know if its "truck vinyl" or not, but the only issue Ive ever had with Gateway is the zipper on one pocket....and that was last season, after 3 solid years of solid beatings.
Revo bags may be great, but Id never put one above a Gateway bag, and I dont care what sponsored Pro is using them.
IMO, thier backpack bag sucks and is stupid in design. I also think the horseshoe opening is a waste.
